Recommended RStudio settings for teaching intro statistics?

Which RStudio settings do people recommend changing from the default values when teaching introductory statistics? Currently, I have students run a script which does:

  rstudioapi::writeRStudioPreference("save_workspace", "never")
  rstudioapi::writeRStudioPreference("load_workspace", FALSE)
  rstudioapi::writeRStudioPreference("insert_native_pipe_operator", TRUE)
  rstudioapi::writeRStudioPreference("show_hidden_files", TRUE)
  rstudioapi::writeRStudioPreference("rmd_viewer_type", "pane")

The first two are, I think, the same as usethis::blank_slate(). The third uses the native pipe, which I think is good practice. The fourth shows all hidden files by default, which I think is useful. The fifth places rendered qmd documents in the Viewer, rather than in a browser. I am a firm believer in the first three changes, but less certain of the last two. Contrary opinions welcome!

What other settings to people recommend that I change?

its related to your own preferences :wink: , good luck
have a wonderful day
